Piñata Alcohol Ink
NEW 4oz Piñata Colors assortment with three exciting new colors!

When Jacquard launched Piñata Colors in 2002, alcohol inks were virtually unheard of. Since then, this unique category has become extremely popular, especially with artists working on non-porous surfaces like tile, Yupo, metal, glass, plastic, stone, leather, polymer clay and more.

That is why Jacquard is offering a new display of 4oz inks!

For the serious artist or craftsperson, .5oz bottles just aren’t enough! And with this new assortment, Jacquard is excited to launch three stunning new highly reflective colors: Brass, Copper and Pearl! Brass and Copper are beautiful metallic colors made from real metal pigments (like the super popular Silver and Rich Gold) that shine like nothing else. The metallic white Pearl is made with super reflective mica pigment and is terrific for mixing with the dye based colors to create entire new palettes of pearlescent inks. These three new colors are opaque, lightfast and shine with unparalleled luster.
